Ok thanks for warning. I will _not_ use them.

If a library or external that is obsolete or deprecated is included in 
Pd-External, there should be a way for the user to know that.
I guess it has already been said a few times in the list, but when you 
browse the extra folder (or the help browser) and you find an external 
you don't usually do a search in the list archives to see if it is 

A way could be to include help-patches (which are missing right now) and 
put a comment that read "DEPRECATED" in each of them.
